It is expected that the applicant will be the primary author and presenter, and will have had substantial input into the collection and interpretation of the results. The content may have been previously submitted to, or presented at, another meeting. A scholarship may be awarded to the same individual no more than once every three (3) years. Presenters should plan on 15-20 minutes for the presentation and 5 minutes for questions and discussion.

One of the annual scholarships is designated “The David Beesinger Traveling Scholarship” in honor of David Beesinger, MD, the original president of the North American Burn Society.

To be considered for one of the scholarships, please submit the following items:

  • Scholarship application form
